The year 2020 saw a change that no one anticipated. Little did everyone know the whole world would be in shambles without knowing for certain when things would return to normalcy. Due to COVID-19, millions of deaths have taken place globally, especially in India where many have come together to contribute towards helping the afflicted. Politicians, leaders, businessmen, and celebrities have donated huge amounts to hospitals and isolation units. Bollywood actor Siddhanth Kapoor also recently contributed towards helping society by donating plasma post a successful defeat against the COVID-19 virus.
Kapoor happily flashed a victory sign in a picture he posted on his Instagram handle, post-donation. Many applauded Kapoor’s gesture by commenting in the comments section on the post. He also urged eligible people to not hold back from donating plasma. Kapoor’s message reads, “Donated plasma today! Please come ahead and donate it if you are eligible to! Please! Please! Thank you, Dr. Joyce and the Reliance Hospital. Come forward and help as much, it’s not painful at all.”
